Welcome to Wilgus Hall

Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall.  Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area.  The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.

Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.


From the Desk of the Resident Director

Welcome to February!

This month is super busy around campus, and the hall, with many important events.

Room Reservations:  The room reservation process for 2015-2016 begins on February 9th.  The full breakdown can be read on our information page (Read More Here) but residents will get a chance to sign up for their exact same room from the 9th until the 11th.  After that opens the ability to change to different locations within the hall or elsewhere on campus.  You should have already received mailbox flyers about this and posters will be located on every wing.  Don't be afraid to ask hall staff if you have any questions about this process!

Snow Emergencies:  February and March can be difficult months for snow fall in Wisconsin.  As such, it is important to know about our campus Snow Emergency Removal process.  You can read all about it by clicking this link.  When this is declared for either streets or parking lots, posters will be placed around Wilgus Hall instructing you which days are which.  As with room reservations, this process may seem a bit overwhelming at first.  Don't worry - ask a staff member for help!  We want to spread the word as much as possible to avoid parking tickets or towing costs.

That's all for now.  Start brainstorming how you'll get involved and make an impact for this semester and/or next academic year.  Stay warm and have a wonderful February, Pioneers.
